On Their Way to Mardi Gras

The Budweiser Clydesdales stopped in our small town on their way to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. This was a big event, being listed in our little newspaper and everything. So my mother-in-law came to get the girls for them to see.

When we arrived, the line to have a picture with the horses was wrapped around the parking lot. Hmm...we thought NOT. We just snapped a picture from across the crowd, marveled at the beauty and size of the horses, and promptly left. We get to pet horses every day. The girls did not want to stand in that line just to pat them and for me to get their photo.
Still, a neat thing. We're not beer fans, but we are horse fans. And a Clydesdale is a LOT of horse!

Come up to St. Louis, you can pet those horses without standing in line! :-)

Of course, they will charge you to take your picture with one out of its stall, but you can always just get a picture of them in the the barn for free! :-)
